Nothing posted by this doctor yet. Here are some posts by similar doctors.

I am 59. Taking 750ml lukewarm water along with lemon juice and a tablespoon of honey early in the morning regularly. Is it alright at this age even in summer days? Furthermore, I have long been suffering from prostatic for last about 4-5 years. For the last one month, according to the advice of a good Doctor of Ayurveda, I have been taking (1) Himplasia-2tabs-twice daily, (2) Kachnar guggulu-3tabs-twice daily and (3) Guksharadi guggulu-3tabs-twice daily and feeling unique benefits so far. Are these Ayurvedic medicines dependable to be totally cured of the prostatic? How long am I to continue with these medicines. Please suggest.

Respected lybrate-user hi definately you can take the mixture you told without hesitation. So far as prostate cure is concerned any allopathic or ayurvedic agents are going to control symptoms of prostate & delay with slight decrease in growth rate of prostate. Nothing is going to absolutely cure you for rest of your life at all. So you have to continue medicines you can't stop & if you stop all previous symptoms will come back again. Thanks regards welcome anytime for any queries dear.

I am 54 years old and feeling low for the last few days and unable to speak freely. Are these signs of some type of cancer or depression?

Hi Mr. lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. You seem to be depressed. However, I would advise you to consult a general physician who can clinically evaluate and advise appropriately. Simultaneously, a little bit of change in diet/ lifestyle may also help cope up suitably. Taking ginger tea (without milk) may help overcome depression, indigestion and nausea, if any. Have a healthy and balanced diet, preferably Mediterranean one and stay well hydrated. Exercising daily for at least 30 minutes can help too. Walking, in open air, is the safest as well as the best should you have no other health related constraints. Early morning yoga, breathing exercises and meditation shall also help you keep focused, relaxed and help you connect with yourself better. It would facilitate face things, as they come, with ease and also enjoy every moment of your life by being able able to give your best, irrespective. If possible, a trip to some hill station or some scenic natural place with plenty of greenery can help you relax, rejuvenate, feel blessed, think clearly and have a fresh perspective. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely,

Dear user. You have borderline high psa along with borderline free to total ratio. I understand that you are religiously following psa because of your family history. I would suggest that you see a urologist so that the investigations can be properly understood along with your clinical evaluation. Please do not hesitate to get a prostate biopsy if need be. Early detected prostate cancer have excellent prognosis. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, given the short description of the issue, it is difficult on my part to recommend anything in specific. I would require more details including the diagnostics, biopsy report, treatment history etc all to be able to advise in particular. Nevertheless, make sure to include more of fresh turmeric, red grapes, pineapple juice, green tea, leafy greens etc all in your daily diet. Supplement diet with vitamin d3 appropriately. Stay well hydrated and keep your lifestyle streamlined. An integrative therapy with natural medicines can help improve clinical outcomes. Hope this helps.

Yes, inheritance is not the only cause for cancer. One may develop cancer arising from a lot of causes, like smoking, alcohol, viral infections etc. So you may still be having a chance of developing cancer as for an average Indian male

I was diagnosed throat cancer I went through chemotherapy and radiation and now the treatment is over but now my food pipe got squeezed and I am in a state where I cannot take liquid food also what should I do?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Please get an endoscopy done, both laryngoscopy and gi endoscopy. If narrowing is present, dilatation can be done by gastroenterologist. Sometimes esophagitis can also cause swallowing difficulty or fungal infection post treatment can also cause dysphagia. You need to know the cause to treat it correctly. You can inhale steam to relieve swelling. Usually four to six weeks post treatment side effects fade off and situation is better.

What is the cause of cancer and what is prevention. Please give the details of all cause of cancer.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery
Oncologist, Ahmedabad
Hi, cancer is a genetic disease. And this is a bottom line. Around half of cancer occur without obvious reason. Half of them have a contributory factors like, smoking, tobacco consumption, high fat diet, unhealthy life style, and so on. Around 7 - 10 % patients have hereditary cause (parents or their relatives had cancer). Prevention is of paramount importance. Adapt healthy life style. Avoid tobacco consumption in any form. Regular health checkup is essential for early detection. For further query please consult on private chat.

At these age, the most common cause of lump in the breast is fibroadenoma which is a benign tumor. However you should get examined physically by a doctor and if necessary an fnac should be performed before jumping to any conclusion.

Oncologist, Delhi
Treatment for prostate cancer is possible. Depending on the age of the patient, biopsy report, PSA level and staging of prostate cancer, following treatment modalities are available: Active Surveillance: is for very low or low grade prostate cancer and for patients who have expected lifespan of <10-15 years. Monitoring with PSA blood tests, digital rectal exams (DREs), ultrasound and prostate biopsy. If any change in risk factors immediate appropriate treatment is instituted. Surgery: appropriated choice for localized prostate cancer that has not spread beyond prostate gland. Appropriate approaches are Open, laparoscopic and robotic. Whenever possible nerve sparing radical prostatectomy is preferred. Side effects of Radical Prostatectomy: Urinary incontinence Most men regain at least some bladder control after a few weeks. Nurse or doctor can teach exercise to help recovery of bladder control. Erectile dysfunction: Surgery may also damage nerves near the prostate and cause erectile dysfunction. Sexual function usually improves over several months, but for some men, this problem can be permanent. Loss of fertility Radiation Therapy: for cure it is given in localized prostate cancer. Usually preferred over surgery if localized prostate cancer is associated with high risk features. Side effects: Bowel problems: Diarrhea, sometimes with blood in the stool, rectal leakage, and an irritated large intestine are problems that usually go away over time, but in rare cases they don’t. Bladder problems: frequence, burningor may be blood in your urine. Bladder problems usually get better over time, but for some men they don’t go away, with the most common problem being the need to urinate often. Trouble controlling urine (incontinence). Erection problems Feeling tired: Radiation treatment may cause severe tiredness. It may not go away until a few months after treatment stops. Urethral stricture Second malignancy: rarely, example; rectum Palliative radiotherapy is given for painful bony metastasis or weight bearing bones Hormone therapy: for advanced stage disease or for recurrence Chemotherapy: usually given for advanced disease when it become refractory to hormone therapy.

MD
Sexologist, Srinagar
Preoperative Sexual Functioning and Quality of Sexual Life in Colorectal Cancer

While sexual problems are common among colorectal cancer patients, they are not necessarily caused by surgical treatment, Dutch researchers report. The patients may already have sexual issues before surgery.

Noting that there was not much information available on colorectal cancer patients? sexual function and quality of sexual life before surgery, the researchers aimed to describe these aspects for both patients and their partners. They also wanted to use standardized sexual health assessments and compare the scores of those patients and partners to mean norm scores.

To do this, they recruited 136 patients who had been diagnosed with colorectal cancer, but had not yet undergone surgical treatment. One hundred six of the patients? partners were also involved.

To measure sexual function and quality of life, the researchers used several questionnaires.

Male patients and male partners completed the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF), which assesses erectile function, orgasmic function, sexual desire, intercourse satisfaction, and overall satisfaction.

All of the women were given the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI), which is used to evaluate arousal, lubrication, orgasmic function, sexual desire, sexual pain, and intercourse satisfaction.

Participants with partners completed the Golombok-Rust Inventory of Sexual Satisfaction (GRISS), which addresses the quality of sexual life. They were also given the Maudsley Marital Questionnaire (MMQ), which examines relationship issues.
Finally, all participants completed an adapted version of the Self-Administered Comorbidity Questionnaire, which provides data on any comorbidities.

Mean norm scores were provided in the manuals of each questionnaire.
The researchers found that when compared to mean norm scores, both male and female colorectal patients had lower scores on the sexual functioning and quality of sexual life domains on the given assessments. Female patients had lower sexual functioning and lower quality of sexual life than male patients. The partners also had lower scores in these areas when compared to mean norm scores. Male partners had lower scores than male patients.

The lower scores could be explained by stress, as there were not many differences between the scores of colon cancer patients and those with rectal cancer. Past research has shown high levels of stress in cancer patients and a link between psychological issues (such as stress, anxiety, and depression) and sexual dysfunction.
In spite of the lower scores, however, the participants? scores on relationship functioning were comparable to the corresponding mean norm scores, suggesting that the sexual issues did not seem to damage relationships.

The findings could help healthcare providers consider the sexual needs of colorectal cancer patients. ?More information provision and/or psychosexual guidance may be needed preoperatively in order to give license to couples to discuss sexual problems and to search for adequate professional support during any point in treatment, especially as the majority of patients do not take the initiative to discuss the treatment options for possible sexual dysfunction,? the authors wrote.

How to avoid cancer?

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS
Oncologist,
Avoid smoking, alcohol, tobacco in any form. Do regular exercises, maintain ideal weight, add fruits and vegetables in your diet. If working with chemicals take proper and recommended precautions try taking organic food vaccination for hepatitis b should be taken. For ladies hpv vaccine should be administered. These are some habits which will help but there is no 100% way to avoid cancer.
